Osprey Pens introduces Titanium Ultra-flex Nib units in Extra-Extra-Fine, Extra-Fine, Fine and Medium tip sizes. The nib is springy, and has more give than a stainless steel ultraflex. When writing with it, the nib feels softer than stainless steel and is reminiscent of old vintage flex nibs.
If you have already purchased an Osprey Milano, Scholar or Madison fountain pen, you can now buy replacement assemblies or just a nib unit.
The assemblies cost $45, while the replacement nib units are priced at $42. The additional parts that come with the assembly are the generic outer section and the osprey converter, that you don't get with just buying the nib unit.
If you are buying an assembly for the Madison series, it comes with a generic Clear outer section, and if you are buying for a Scholar or a Milano, it comes with a generic Black outer section.
Note that the #6 ultra-flex Titanium nib units come with custom ebonite feed to keep up with ink demands of flex writing. These units do not accept International converters or cartridges and work best with the wide-mouthed osprey converters, designed specifically for use with ultra-flex nib units.
Do not use India Inks, they can clog the ebonite feeds. Fountain Pen inks are recommended. Few examples of inks that worked best with ebonite feeds as reported by our customers: The Noodlers standard Black , MontBlanc Burgundy Red ink, Herbin Perle Noire, Platinum carbon Black, D'Artremis document Black ink, Pilot Iroshizuku line of inks, Rohrer & Klingner SketchINK. Pls send us your feedback on inks that worked best, and inks that didn't, to continue to add to this list. You know and we know that a big part of getting the most out of any pen is to get the pen/ink combination right, especially with the flex nibs.
Tiny tip: Make sure to wash the nib and feed right away after use, if you suspect the ink has any pigments that could gummy the feed.
